For those of you that like to read and grow, read and grow… Here were my favorite books from 2013! (in no particular order)
More Than Enough by Dave Ramsey- His books never disappoint. This one really focused on character, integrity, hard work, values, hope, vision. I enjoyed it!
Radical Together by David Platt- Great for churches to read together, very convicting, discusses the need for churches to stop pouring their heart into all their programs and get to reaching the unreached! Very challenging!
How to be a Great Wife… even though you homeschool by Todd Wilson- I’ve read a lot of books on being a wife. This one ranks up there at the top of the list! Short, sweet, great points!!
Lies Homeschooling Moms Believe by Todd Wilson- This author knows how to keep his books short and to the point! Excellent little book!!
College by 12 (e-book) by The Harding Family- Although the book wasn’t organized well and dragged on at points, the general take-away has revolutionized my homeschooling! All of their children so far have graduated high school by age 13 or so, starting entry-level college courses by age 12! Their oldest daughter was a physician by age 21! They explain that their children are of average intelligence, they’re not some hyper-geniuses or anything. But if you let your children excel in school at their pace and love on them with lots of encouragement, they can go far academically!
Adoption Miracles by Karen Kingsbury- Touching stories of domestic, infant adoptions.
Journey to the Fatherless by Lawrence Burgeron- Whew, if you’re not sure what part you can play in caring for orphans world-wide, this book will leave you feeling equipped for sure. Every Christian should care for the orphan (James 1:27), what will that look like in your life?
Heaven for Kids by Randy Alcorn- This author’s books never disappoint! This one was written for 10-15 year-olds and answers so many common questions about Heaven. An awesome read! I can’t wait to read his original Heaven book. And his Treasure Principle book is still one of my all-time favorite books ever!
Straight Talk with Your Kids About Sex by Josh and Dottie McDowell- Whew, blog post coming on this one soon! I learned a ton from this book and am so excited about it!
